Josie Maran Argan Matchmaker Powder Foundation

In the dead of winter, my complexion tends to be lighter due to the lack of sun exposure. I find my winter skin to be in need of a little punch, and as I don't want to add yet another step to my morning routine (seriously, I don't have time to properly blend in a shimmer stick and I'm not willing to risk going out with a streaky face). I picked up this compact ($34) in medium/dark at Sephora.
Via Sephora
Claim: "This customized, one-step complexion-perfecting foundation is formulated with Matchmaker’s signature chameleon pigments and infused with 100 percent pure argan oil to balance, hydrate, and nourish the skin. This pressed powder instantly adjusts to match your unique and changing natural skintone."
Pros: minimizes appearance of pores, blurs imperfections, adds a hint of shimmer to warm up complexion. Contains SPF 20.
Cons: tough to blend, streaky, leaves an overall reddish cast, didn't match my complexion so my face looked made up and not natural. (I did try the light/medium shade in-store, but it was much too chalky on my skin tone).
Bottom line: this product comes in 3 shade offerings. Though it claims to self-adjust to any shade, if you have a tricky complexion to match (as I do), I would avoid this one.

Meet Queen Jetsun Pema of Bhutan

The young, beautiful, and fashionable Queen of Bhutan, a country secluded from the world's limelight due to its remoteness, has already been generating a stir ever since her marriage to the King and her rise to the position of Queen Consort. She is a powerhouse in her own right, and much loved by the Bhutanese people. However, on a fun and superficial level, she has also drawn favorable comparisons to the Duchess of Cambridge, so much so, that she is sometimes referred to as the "Kate Middleton of the Himalayas".
So who is this Himalayan Queen? At 25-years-old, she is the youngest Queen Consort in the world. Like Kate, she was a commoner (though with an aristocratic lineage) and the daughter of a pilot. She is fashionable, athletic, and holds a university arts background. Additionally, she herself is a brand new mum, having recently given birth to a baby boy.
As with Wills and Kate, the King and Queen of Bhutan have always shown great respect for their country's cult…
